While walking the red carpter at last night’s Oscars, Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau told E! that Emily Blunt is officially out as the Black Widow in the film. Favreau said that 20th Century Fox has decided to exercise their option on the actress, and Blunt will be starring in Gulliver’s Travels instead (see related story here).
The current rumor is that Scarlett Johansson is in talks to play the role.
